Tuesday's two-game slate is pretty interesting-- one featuring Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals and another a winner-take-all Game 7 in the Western Conference finals. At first glance, it is easy which game to commit to-- and that's the Clippers-Nuggets series-- but at the same time, it could backfire. A Game 7 will likely feature a tighter rotation and more stringent defense, thus limiting fantasy points, probably except from the big guns. With that being said, I'd be very tempted to tap Read More
I'll be focusing on Yahoo for this edition of Best Value Picks because they bunched two game days to make a three-game slate. That should give us more choices and options to manipulate the rosters, unlike DraftKings, who had mostly showdowns for the night featuring the Lakers and Rockets. Before that, I'm going to review my bargain choices yesterday. Marcus Smart (23 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists, and one steal) brought his best game of the season in a double-overtime loss, tallying a triple-double Read More
It was pretty much good pickings from my last suggestions, with Jae Crowder and Rajon Rondo, but PJ Tucker, George Hill, and Markieff Morris fall way short. However, if you went with Crowder and Rondo along with the number of better options out there, that should net a win in most leagues. In my opinion, the two games tomorrow will provide us a lot of options at the middle, especially on the Toronto-Boston series. On the Nuggets-Clippers series, it's more of hit or miss, but there are still plenty Read More
Here's a short recap of the bargain options we had for Wednesday and like what I said, bargain-hunting can be more misses than hits sometimes. Mitchell Robinson- This one is a hit. Robinson rewarded owners with a nice nine-point, nine-rebound outing with three blocks. Ben McLemore- McLemore finally cooled off or shall I say, he did not just get enough opportunities to launch with James Harden going for 55. He had six points (on just seven field goal attempts), three rebounds, an assist, and a block Read More
Note: There will be 12 teams with four games scheduled for week 7 (which makes it ideal for streaming options) while 16 has three. If possible, stay away from Boston and San Antonio since they only have a two-game week. 1.) Josh Hart, SG/SF, New Orleans Pelicans Many thought Hart will have a hard time cracking the 25-30 minute workload range since his injury but lo and behold, here he is topping 30 minutes twice in a row in just his second and third games back. Alvin Gentry has his reason for Read More
The Studs Nikola Jokic, C, Denver Nuggets & Kawhi Leonard, SF, Toronto Raptors Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports Let's save some space here and pick Kawhi Leonard and Nikola Jokic as centerpieces of your DFS team. The Joker dropped over 60 fantasy points in the last three games and the way he is playing I won't be surprised that he'll do it for a fourth straight. On the other hand, Kawhi has registered over 50 fantasy points in four of the last six. In some fantasy basketball sites Read More
We got a 10-game Tuesday night in our heads and you all know what that means: It's time to go bargain hunting!
Here are some of the best bargains for NBA DFS Tuesday:
Jordan Clarkson, PG, Cleveland Cavaliers
20.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.7 steals, and a steal over the past three games? JC is solidifying his role as an offensive sparkplug off the bench and he is also playing at least 32 minutes in each of these games.
Taurean Prince, SF, Atlanta Hawks
Four solid games out the last six, Read More
It's a seven-game Friday night and we got lots of bargain options for NBA DFS Friday.
Fred VanVleet, PG, Toronto Raptors
VanVleet is back and hasn't missed a beat. His presence also lowers the impact of Kyle Lowry's injury and allows their All-Star to rest up until the real battle begins.
In three games since his re-entry into the Raptors lineup, FVV is averaging 17.7 points, 7.3 assists, and a steal per game. What's more important is he is playing 33 minutes a night on average, which gives Read More
NBA DFS Best Value Picks-- March 24, 2017
John Wall, PG, Washington Wizards ($9,600)
The Wizards figure in a tight race for the 2nd seed in the East so there's no worry about John Wall not playing. Actually, the Nets are playing pretty good ball lately, too. But they have trouble stopping point guards all year and they are facing maybe the best in the conference. Easy 40-pointer J-Wall.
Dwight Howard, C, Atlanta Hawks ($7,300)
With Paul Millsap out, Howard is leaned upon more in Read More
February 1, 2016-- DFS Basketball Best Value Picks
Marc Gasol, C ($7,700)
Gasol is dealing with a minor injury with his knee but it seems like that's all there is: MINOR. The Spanish big man is extremely effective in the past 5 games, capping it with an almost-50 FP performance against the Sacramento Kings. Coincidentally, the Memphis Grizzlies have won 7 of its past 8 with Gasol leading the charge.
Kevin Love, PF ($7,300)
Love has been the primary beneficiary of the coaching change Read More
